About the Image(s)

I saw a planter full of these puffballs last week along a river trail (Santa Fe River) in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I'm not sure what they are, my Plant Net app suggests blackthorn with a 15% degree of accuracy. During our recent stay there I saw a number of blossoming plants that had similar flowers.

I took this image with a Panasonic Lumix GX7 with a 3-D lens made for that camera and used frame sides for phantogram processing.

A nicely exposed ttw, but your composition feels a little lopsided to my eye. It would look better to me with more flower and less background. If you had stepped to your right and turned slightly to the left, you'd have a better result. Your window is already limited by the flowers on the left, so turning to use them on both sides of the forward flower would balance the framing and allow a deeper phantogram effect.   Posted: 05/11/2022 10:56:31

Pretty white flowers! I don't know if you put the white borders or that's the way they get prepared for group 68, but not having a white border on both sides of each image, causes me a lot of distress while looking at the sides of the image. Could you put the same border (either white or black) all around the images? Well focused and mostly behind the screen.   Posted: 05/16/2022 13:05:56
